WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
Written by Kihara Toshie, who reimagined once more in a dramatic way the anonymously written Heian Era "Torikaebaya Monogatari," the "Torikaebaya Ibun" rewrites the story from a historical setting in the noble world of the Dynastic Period to the samurai class of the Warring States Period.
The time is the Azuchi-Momoyama Period. While Yukariko is a woman, she is by nature masculine and, as she was raised in a family with no heir, she learned general martial arts. Then an unexpected story is told to Yukariko, whose father died suddenly. It is said that because Yukariko is the daughter of the daimyo of Aki (Hiroshima), and twins with the current feudal lord, she was given to an adoptive family in secret. As a matter of fact her brother the feudal lord, Midorio, is ill, and in order that the other provinces may not know, she is told that he wants her to serve as his substitute....
The story tells of Yukariko, who becomes the substitute for her brother, and the heart she sacrifices to protect the feudal domain according to her brother’s wishes, as well as the love of the people surrounding Yukariko: Fubuki, the Princess Maizuru, and Sadatsugu.
